All indications point to
Spring finally arriving!

How do I know this you ask....

As you can see the snow is melting and
in Zone 4....Lake Larry has arrived!

For all of you new to the Zones around
our house here is a recap....

Zone 1 -- front yard where I play football

Zone 2 -- This is where Remington Drive is....
this is my area to plant flowers and herbs. 
There is also a suburb called Gnomeville.

Zone 3 -- This is our wild animal sanctuary. 
I am NOT allowed there. 
I can only observe from the tower (deck) or kitchen window.
This is for the feral cats, deer, fox, skunk and
anyone else that needs food, water or shelter. 
It is right by the Magical Forest.

Zone 4 -- the first picture....
this is between our house and our neighbors
whose name is Larry. 
When it rains a lot or when the snow
melts we have a huge puddle of water. 
Hence -- Lake Larry.

I hope this will help you in understanding
what I am talking about this summer. 
 I tend to refer to our "Zones" a lot.

Later -- Remington --
off to walk around in Zone 1....
-- out!

Cher' Shots said...

Thanks for the ZONE info, now I will be able to track you when reading your blog. All my zones are completly covered with that 'white stuff' again this morning ~ about two to three inches worth. Temps are supposed to hit 50 today so the snow should be short lived. Yea!
'hugs from afar'

I am a little partial to puddles....bwhahahahaha, I cracks myself up!
I am so jealous of your beautiful yard...and da fact you is allowed in da front yard.


My Mind's Eye said...

Yay Rem
Did you ship the rest of your snow to the North Pole? Thank goodness we see green and Lake Larry. Mom and I were amazed to see the skunk in Zone 3 during the day. We had no idea they would come out like that.
MOL @ Puddles comment!!

Happy Day to you handsome friend,
Hugs madi

Ms. ~K said...

A big boy like you needs a lot of zones to roam in!!! But stay away from Zone 3!!! Pepe Le Pew may not appreciate your kindness! :)
Hugs and belly rubs!

Glad you're finally getting some Spring-ish weather! Thanks for the run down on the zones. Holy moly, I thought that was a REAL lake when I saw that first picture! Looks like Larry may have some drainage issues in his yard... :) Have fun playing in it though!

Elyse and Riley

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

Be careful near that lake! BOL! Glad spring's coming!

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Zone 3 looks like a good place to stay away from, especially given the creatures that are in that picture!

We hope lake Larry doesn't get too big!

rottrover said...

Thanks for the re-cap! We joined late last year :-)

Ginny Hartzler said...

When I saw you standing beside the Lake, I actually thought it was a pond!!! Well, maybe you can go fihing, Rem!!

Two French Bulldogs said...

Oh Remington how cool that you have your very own wildlife sanctuary, BOL. Look at all those wild animals

Unknown said...

Have fun, perhaps you can convince Beth and Mike for a soak in Lake Larry?

White Dog Blog said...

You should have a paddleboat for Lake Larry; that way you and Ozabella could gently float and sun yourselves while sipping brightly colored Spring-y beverages! Your Yard and all its Zones are awesome!

Lorenza said...

Very interesting, Remington!
I will understand better when you talk about your zones!
Kisses and hugs

Asta said...

smoochie kisses

Marilyn said...

The foxes, skunks, raccoons, and opossums come right up to my back door and seem to like my backyard, so I try not to have too much food out for them-they can be rather greedy! The visitors I'm not fond of have no feet and are low to the ground. Hope Lake Larry is dry soon so you can romp on the grass.♥♫

Anonymous said...

Lake Larry too funny! I like your Zones Remington. Thinkin with those skunks in Zone 4 it's probably a good thing you don't go there ;)


SquirrelQueen said...

Hi Remington, glad to hear spring has finally arrived at your place. You've got some great zones, thanks for the tour. We think Zone 3 is very cool and it's super nice of you, Beth & Mike to provide this for the animals.

MadSnapper said...

Hi, I will try the vanilla and water for bug spray, i am allergic to chemical bug sprays, and have been using skin so soft from Avon, in water. it helps some. thanks for the info i like the smell of vanilla better than skin so soft

bichonpawz said...

Thank you for showing us around the zones again Remington! Glad your toe is better! Ozabella is a great nurse's helper!
